Do you allow your kids to eat snow?

If they catch it with their tongues, sure. But that's honestly not that much. I am sure they get a few mouth fulls while sledding. Sure it's gross but it's part of being a kid. And tasting snow is gonna happen.

We didn't get snow when I was growing up. Thats why Im not interested. But I allow it in my house because I know they're kids and it wont harm them. I don't let them eat too much though.

On occasion if it is fresh snow that no one has walked through, but not usually

 Yes. If it's just fallen, they can take from anywhere. If it's been around for a bit, they can dig under the top layer that's obviously dirty to get to cleaner stuff.

We did that on vacation this past summer when we ended up on an unplanned 3 mile hike- we only had my water bottle, so we stretched that by eating snow (we were in Glacier Nat'l Park).

I don't think my son has ever asked me if he could eat snow.

We didn't move to a climate with snow until he was 6 years old, and I'm not sure if he had any interest in it at that age.

I'd have to ask him.

Yup, if it snows during school my 7 year olds family group gathers a bunch of snow and makes ice cream with it. :)
